    I have noticed lately that my iMac screen does not shut off even though in the energy saver screen I have set the display to sleep after 15 minutes. Any suggestions of how to fix this issue? I have a Early '09, 20 inch iMac (OS X 10.6.6)

    Could be a number of things.

    Try putting the display to sleep - CONTROL+SHIFT+EJECT & seeing if it wakes itself back up.

    If it does it could be:
    Wake-on-lan
    Mouse activity
    There are probably a few more.
